What if I told you that you don’t to live in pain for the rest of your life?
Fibromyalgia is classified as a disorder involving muscle pain, weakness, fatigue, sleep disturbance, memory and mood issues. In order to be diagnosed, someone has to have at least 11 out of 18 points of tenderness in specific areas of the body. In Western Medicine, most providers may tell you there is no cure and not much you can do except take pain, sleep, and antidepressant medication for your symptoms. However, these medications do not treat the root cause.
A lot of research and studies are looking at the role of oxidative stress in those with fibromyalgia, causing damage and dysfunction of the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the power houses in all our cells, but they are found in abundance in our muscles and heart. The main function is to produce energy. This makes sense that when mitochondria are damaged or not functioning, this could cause pain.
Another review in the Pain Research and Treatment journal, states that chronic psychological stress with an inappropriate response to stress could be another cause as well. The pathophysiology that occurs is that stress activates the sympathetic nervous system to constrict the blood vessels in the muscular which also results in pain. While there may not be a cure, you can discover what are the root causes so the approach can be treating the cause, improving your symptoms, and quality of life.
Causes of fibromyalgia are:
1. Food sensitivities or intolerance such as gluten or dairy, or other foods reacting with your microbiome, that is causing inflammation in your body.
2. Nutritional deficiencies such as Vitamin D, B vitamins, CoQ10, and Magnesium.
3. Chronic, hidden infections such as yeast, mold, Lyme, and Epstein Barr.
4. Thyroid disorders which can also contribute to symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, and sleep disturbances.
5. Heavy metals that have accumulated in the body, primarily mercury, but also lead, arsenic, and cadmium.
6. Exposure to toxins found in your home, personal care products, environmental, and industrial chemicals.
7. Lack of quality and quantity sleep.
8. Chronic psychological stress.
